Like learning to use chopsticks, roller skating takes patience, dedication, and a particularly dexterous set of toes. Show off how flexible your feet are with today's Groupon: for $6, you get a skate session (a $6.75 value), skate or rollerblade rental (a $3 value), and one game of laser tag (a $3.25 value) at Skate Heaven in Denham Springs (a $13 total value).
Skate Heaven lets skaters pick their preferred foot car for speeding around the light blue, celestial-themed rink. Surrounded by majestic stars and planetary bodies, inveterate house skaters find an immersive venue in which to practice arabesques and camel spins without demolishing lamps and leaving skid marks on the kitchen table. A round of all-ages laser tag places feet back on the ground and photon blasters into the hands as octogenarians vie with 5-year-old sharpshooters within safe, laser-guided mock battles.
Skate sessions get rolling Fridays from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.; Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.; and Sundays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., affording a range of times for mobile birthday parties, impromptu rink races, and field trips for bored physics teachers.
At Skate Heaven, wheels glide around a vibrantly decorated rink whose mural walls depict fiery planets, eggplant-purple clouds, and the star-studded blackness of space. This galactic arena sets the stage for guests to cruise around on traditional skates or rollerblades, racing furiously until someone runs out of petrol. In addition to skating, Skate Heaven entertains visitors with games of laser tag open to all ages and heights, making it ideal for octogenarian giraffes. As older siblings cavort around the rink or laser-tag arena, wee ones can tumble over bright cushions or crawl through transparent tubes in the soft play area.
